Akin to the Taylor Swift lyric, Weber State volleyball just kept dancing all the way to 22.

The Wildcats swept home matches against Idaho and Eastern Washington over the weekend — neither were particularly close — improving WSU’s record to 15-5 overall and 10-0 in the Big Sky.

Saturday’s win over EWU improved two Weber State streaks to 22: the Wildcats’ home winning streak, and their current streak of consecutive sets won.

WSU has posted seven consecutive sweeps in Big Sky play and, going back two years, is 36-2 in it its last 38 regular-season conference matches.

The Wildcats spend the next two weeks on the road to Sacramento State (Oct. 28) and Portland State (Oct. 30), then Idaho State (Nov. 3) and Northern Colorado (Nov. 6), before finishing the regular season at home against Northern Arizona (Nov. 11) and Southern Utah (Nov. 13).

WSU hosts the Big Sky tournament Nov. 18-20 at Swenson Gym.

Weber State served 12 service aces in a quick 25-17, 25-16, 25-11 decision over Idaho on Thursday. Dani Nay served five of those aces, Baylee Bodily three and Makayla Sorensen two.

WSU 3, EWU 0
